This was our 3rd time going and took some friends who had never been there before and they loved it! There were only a handful of customers on a Sat night at 7pm but we had terrific service from Jake (waiter) and the food was wonderful! Everyone had a different dish and all were cooked well and enjoyed immensely. Had steak, pasta with shrimp, chicken parm, and a fish and two salads, along with a bottle of wine and some other drinks. We will be back again!

We went for Fathers Day and my parents 51st Anniversary. We went for brunch and we basically had the place to ourselves which was cool! Brea our server had literally just cut her pinky off the day before and she showed up to work! She was so sweet and fantastic. Every. Single. Thing we got was fantastic. We got the Aranceli rice balls, the focaccia bread w Rosemary, wedge salad, and the Short rib pasta. It was also half off certain bottles of wine. We got 2 50 dollar bottles of wine half off. We can’t wait to go back!

Outstanding food and service. And I most especially applaud their social distancing and use of masks, gloves, and clean menus.

Ambiance and service were excellent. The food was marginal at best. The Arancini was over cooked and dry. The short rib had very little flavor. Brussel sprouts were delish.

Amazing. It's not often I give a thumbs up for pizza in AZ (as I'm a bit spoiled by east coast pizza - love my tomato pies), but I thought the pizza was superb - thin crust with just the right crunch and sauce/toppings were delicious. My son had the pasta bucatini - made from scratch. In my opinion, it's much better then Lamp pizza.

Good salad and then we shared the Chicken Parm -- the chicken was very good but the pasta that was served with it was like rubber ---- Also, bread did not appear to be standard for dinner orders.

Everything on the menu is home made and fantastic. Leave room for Butta-Cake as it is the best desert I have ever had anywhere! Great food, great service, great place! We dine here often and why not it's the best place within 50 miles!

New restaurant we found, delicious focaccia bread with the best truffle butter! Really enjoyed the arancinis (if you like a little spicy sauce) and the chicken parm was delicious! One of our favorite new spots!

We had a 7:45 PM reservation and arrived on time. Table was not ready but went to outside bar and sat there for ten minutes while bartenders paid us no attention so we moved outside to wait on our table. We were seated about 20 minutes past our reservation outside as we wished. Another fifteen minutes passed until our waiter came to table. However, a larger table seated after us was attended too immediately. With this said, the food was good and like the patio. Not sure if we will give another try.

We were the only guest in the restaurant at 5pm with a 4yr old and 1yr old. My wife order chicken parmigiana. The chicken was raw when my wife cut into the chicken. Manager came over and apologized. After 15 minutes later server brought out another dish. Not sure for chicken parm at $27 was worth it. Wife loss appetite after taking her first bite of raw chicken. No compensation or even an offer for a dessert or for the meal. Too many other Italian restaurants in the valley to go back to this one.

Was excited to try a new place for the family. Began ordering the focaccia bread and prosciutto bruschetta. Appetizers came and we got the focaccia bread and burrata bruschetta instead of the prosciutto. We chose not to say anything and both were delicious which is why I’m giving two stars. I ordered the butternut squash angolotti, my husband and one son both ordered the pappardelle and my other son the rigatoni. While the flavor of my dish was good, the pasta was cool to Luke warm; the pappardelle was stuck together in clumps and chewy and the rigatoni was so overcooked it was mushy. We would have said something but didn’t see our waiter again until it was too late. Very disappointed.

The Ceasar Salad I shared with my dinner companion was one of the best I’ve experienced in a great while. Crisp Gem lettuce with a house made dressing was exquisite. It was unfortunate that the rest of the meal was lackluster. The spicey sopresatta pizza would have been better if not for the drizzle of honey. I tried very hard to embrace this taste combination but in the end it just seemed contrived. My partner wasn’t impressed with the pasta Bolognese. The presentation was lackluster and the taste was bland. On the positive, our server, Jake, was delightful and couldn’t have been more pleasant. He’s a delightful young man and an asset to the restaurant.

Great food, service was above average. My issue is their hours. It was a Thursday night and we were still enjoying our wine after our meal at 8:45 and the cleaning staff was cleaning around us. Very annoying. Wont come back in the evening based on this . Very odd.

This used to be my go to place for great food and wine; havent been in a while as everything like everything else has gone down; you're pizza used to be amazing, what has happened?? I was truly disappointed! The happy hour wine choices and 1/2 price wine bottles were always top notch, that too has fallen off. I see why its been so long since I ate here, truly a disappointment!!
